Acer’s New W5 and W7 dockable tablets coming Q2

Updated on 10 March 2014

Just heard from a good source here at CeBIT is the news that Acer has a new W5 and W7 in the works. We had already heard a whisper from MWC but we now know that the devices are coming in Q2 and specifications are starting to trickle through.

W510

The W510 was a popular 10-inch dockable tablet on the Clovertrail Atom platform that had some excellent battery life thanks to the additional power pack in the keyboard dock. It was the perfect holiday PC.

We’ve heard that the new W5 will have an aluminum design and a magnetically-assisted docking mechanism The W7 is said to follow similar design lines We expect to have more information within 24hrs so stay tuned.

More from us. (No silly ads.)

    Loved the W510, one of my favorite windows tablets , especially liked the design. Hope they change the dock though, it was hideos with that thing.

    I am also a huge fan of the Acer W510 and have been eagerly waiting for something to replace that; maybe the upcoming W5 will be just like the W510 (weight, dimensions, extra battery in keyboard, configuration options like tent, display, tablet and laptop modes) but with more horsepower from the Baytrail processor.

    Thanks,

    Would love to see the new version of the W5 as the first one looked awesome and was just the right sort of size. I know you loved yours Chippy can’t wait to here for more may just have to email my contact at Acer and try and get a sneak peak.
